Many people wrote in to say that amiga.com is up again, after what seemed like taking the weekend off. When was the last time you saw a company website, or even a personal homepage, being down for two days?

Then I would say, switch providers. Imagine you are running an e-business.
Imagine you are earning 100,000 USD per day. Imagine your server being down
for two days. Now, Amiga is not selling any products right now, so things
might be a little bit different. But what if a potential investor is trying
to get more information on them. He heard of their website. He can't access
it. Do you think he'll try again two days later? Imagine a major website
linking to them. Many potential developers. An hour later, the server goes
down. 10,000 potential developers stare at a 500 Server Error. Do you think
Of course I'm exagerrating in my examples. But I suppose you get my point.
As a company, you have to build up an overall image. A website that is down for
several days doesn't really contribute to that.
